Excellent Choice
Douglas W.
Recently purchased this tough auto as an EDC. Not a knife for sissies -- and not for beginners either!! Point is needle sharp. Cutting edge of the blade is shaving sharp (I did), and the top of the blade is thick and solid. Opens fast and easy. I like the smallish but tight pocket clip, which goes well with the overall handsome design. Button opener has a reddish design to help set it apart. This knife works perfectly and has great balance and feel to it. For the money you won't beat this EDC -- it's easily worth twice what I paid. A+
Best of the Launch series

I waited till close out pricing to buy this. I have a number of other autos and several SpeedSafe and manual Kershaws also. This model is in my top favorite knives after two months carry and use.

Beautiful! Canít argue but I think this is an elegant gorgeous knife. Snappy! Yes, perhaps not as arresting a sound as some autos, and maybe that is not a bad thing? Reliable? After experience with classic old world autos, this is clearly better and longer lived than any Italian stilleto.

The blade: supreme! CPM 154 may not be the best steel out there anymore, but it is just a hair below S30V, and this knife came out of the box sharper than any other production knife I have ever purchased. Shaving sharp, with a bit of water, for real.

Excellent knife on all counts and only sorry to see what I regard as the best of 9 models discontinued. Grab it while you can, and here it is significantly discounted. 🔪🔪🔪
Great Knife - My new EDC
Randy C.
I just received my Black Kershaw Launch 2 with the stone wash finish and couldn't be more pleased.

Shipping was prompt, packed in a small bubble pack envelope with the knife safe in a box.

The spring is strong and the blade locks in place with authority. There is zero play in any direction once open and the blade is shaving sharp.

The design is classy and well thought out. There is a hole for a lanyard as well as short rectangular holes that run down the spine. When open the lines of the blades spine run seamlessly into the knives handle and the blade edge does the same on the receiving side.

There's the smallest raised portion near the end that helps it from slipping out of your grip and the button lives in a recess which helps prevent accidental deployment.

I've been as pleased with fixed blade knives I've bought in this price range and was reluctant to spend this on an EDC. Still, I had been considering several Benchmade autos at a significantly higher price but I thought I'd take a chance.

Needless to say I'm very pleased with this Kershaw Launch 2. The blade quality, workmanship, design, sharpness, delivery and price for the product are all spot on.

You won't be disappointed with this knife.
Outstanding made in USA

This is Kershaw's new release, and these are new by the way, get this knife you won't be disappointed there's been lots of good reviews on it. Mine came in rather quickly, and couldn't be happier, very well made no movement or rattling, very strong action snaps right out, tight lock up, sharp out of the box, very slim, fits nice in the hand, nice stone wash finish, CPM 154 high grade steel, made in USA, this is high quality right here. Get yours now before their all gone make sure you live in legal state if you want one. Kershaw is a high quality brand. I'm happy with my purchase once again this is one of the best push buttons I've ever had, no complaints here, bladeplay has great service, I always love the free shipping. This will be my 2 years on bladeplay, and I'm looking forward on buy from them again.
